The Repeater Tower is on the Ground
We have had a bunch of high winds in the area that has taken the tower down. I will update this page with pictures soon.
YES, we are on the air low profile.
The Repeater System
How it all started
The KC9ZAR repeater system started as a few friends that wanted to build a repeater with coverage for the Daviess county area here in Washington Indiana. We started with a loaner from KB9LOW it was a Kenwood TKR-820 UHF, KC9ZAP had the tower that wasn’t being used. After receiving my IRC coordination of 443.225 the KC9ZAR Repeater was born. After about a year on the air we had the opportunity to expand by linking to the W9HD “Shawnee Repeater” located in Cincinnati Indiana. Then came the W9EOC “67” repeater located in Vincennes Indiana. KC9BUH has added a cross band system located in the Patoka Lake area. The complete system is equipped with a battery backup, IRLP, EchoLink, NOAA Weather radio notifying operators of severe weather conditions. We encourage rag crew and our users are courteous of others, all FCC rules are followed. Don’t forget that Thursday 8:00pm EST we operate a wide area net, please stop by and say hello.
And any other system world wide that would like to join IRLP ref9200. Everyone is welcome!ype your paragraph here.
